Pope Francis and the Virgin Mary

"Hail Holy Queen, Mother of mercy, Our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs..."

This video is of an interview that was conducted 6 months before Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis. What most strikes me about it is the way that the Pope speaks about the faith in the Virgin Mary that is so strong among many Catholics.

It is this great "reservoir" of love for the Virgin which will bring about the rebirth of the Catholic Church. She speaks to our hearts. Even when we begin to separate from Christ himself, still the blessed Virgin is able to reach us. She gave birth to the Church and she is our Holy Mother. We cannot help but love her.
